Where Are You?

Your past mistakes can only limit your future if “you” allow them too. Sometimes we each have to stop and take a personal inventory of our life—similar to a doctor performing an examination, in order to determine where we are mentally, spiritually, and physically.

 

  • How is your overall attitude about life?
  • Are you harboring ill-feelings toward anyone?
  • Is the love you carry for others genuine or undercover envy?
  • Are you living by faith or fear?
  • Are there traces of resentment dwelling in your heart?
  • When is the last time you prayed in faith?
  • What are you afraid of?
  • What are you worried about?

There are many other questions I could’ve listed during this internal checkup. Once you go through your examination, determine which areas in your life need to be fixed and begin the process. To change means that “you” have to shift from your former mindset. It may hurt a little, but in the end you’ll rejoice because of the impact a new “you” will have in life.

STATE OF MIND ALERT ***Don’t be deceived by his or her smile***

shadow-824128_1280

Be careful with those who smile in your face. A smile in itself is harmless if it expresses an inward nature of humility. But there are times when smiles can hide evil intentions. This is not always the case, but some people have learned how to mimic a genuine smile, in order to convey their true feelings. Moreover, there are moments when emotions can get the best of us and push one down a path of resentment. In this “state of mind” a person will shelter themselves from everyone, especially the object of their obsessions. This is a destructive place to be, simply because you muzzle unresolved feelings, and attempt to move on when you haven’t really let go. When our smile and heart agree in sincerity, our life will flow effortless with peace. From a religious point of view, Christian should not behave as those without the faith of Christ, but yet it seems to be more prominent in the church. How can you pray one moment and disregard your brother or sister because of feelings? This “state of mind” will keep an individual in a cycle of delusion, thinking that God smiles upon them. In this case, he or she has terrible deceived themselves.  We musty step out of emotions and appreciate one another in whatever state they abide, as long as it doesn’t interrupt the flow of purpose. Love is a verb and it is demonstrated by actions. It is written in the Holy Bible, that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves, but people simply shoot it as a bullet flying from a chamber, without fully discerning the essence thereof. Love supports when there is no need, Love accepts without reason, Love forgives, Love respects a person’s individuality. Sadly, this is not always the case.

Bridle of Emotions

One of the worst things an individual can do is to respond from the seat of emotions. When we respond from an emotional stance, our reply is blurred and buried in feelings. We must in all things give space for reasoning. Once we allow our spirit to settle our vision will become clear, and our response will be approved.
